2 Mini Poetry Book Reviews

Life is random and so is this book. 
It is a collection of poems arranged in no particular order. There are happy poems, sad poems, serious poems, poems about real life and poems that are total fiction. There are poems about love, poems about cats, poems for children, and there is even one about a... 
From one page to the next you don't know what you are going to find.

Come with me
and climb a rainbow
one color at a time
until we reach the clouds.
We can drift away
with the billowing grey
on a quest to catch
a wandering star.
And on that star
   we can make a wish
that out moment
will last forever.

Book Breakdown

This was a lovely collection of poems. Some are just so beautiful that I had to read them again right after I finished. I've actually never read a book of poetry before so I didn't know what to expect but it wasn't this. This was so much better than I thought it would be. I've even written one down and used it to make my own bookmark. 

For anyone who loves poems, this little book is for you. There is just about everything in here. The author has such a talent, I wish I could write a poem this well! The way the words flow are just amazingly wonderful.

Encounter is a book of poems written mostly in free verse but with some traditional poetic forms included. The poems are divided into three themes – love, nature and life.

Linda has experienced all sides of love – the joy it brings, the pain when it goes wrong, unrequited and learning to move on. Her aim is to show that it really is possible to overcome heartbreak and start again with hope and confidence.
She is constantly inspired by nature and she invites you to share with her the thrill of a new spring, mercurial summer, the glorious colors of autumn, the frozen wonders of winter.

Book Breakdown

This book is so amazing! It had me wishing for summer and usually I hate summer so that's rare on it's own. The poems of love are what stuck with me the most. I found myself trying to memorize some so I could keep them forever. 

This book is a very short read. So if you are wanting to get into poetry but aren't sure, then get this book. If you don't like it, then no harm done but if you decide you like poetry than you have a wonderful little book that gives you a great start.

I'm so glad that I was able to read this book, so worth it. I had it read in less than an hour and found myself going back to read my favorites right after. It's just flows so perfectly. The author such has an amazing way with words. Give this one a try, you won't regret it!

(Pride) Book Review - Sagittarius Saves Libra

True love is on the horizon, Sagittarius. It’s a good time to step out of your routine and into the unknown. Jason Lyall wants someone to come home to, someone he can be his most ridiculous self with. Someone who loves him regardless. But no matter how hard he tries, he can never quite make that connection, and now his last girlfriend has moved on—she’s engaged. So when his identical twin begs him to swap lives for a few weeks, Jason can see the appeal. Suddenly he’s living another life in a tiny Australian town, contending with weird, wild, and wonderful things the likes of which he’s never encountered before. Like spiders. Like snakes. Like his new neighbour, Sergeant Owen Stirling, who is all kinds of . . . suspicious. Prepare to be caught in a merry mix-up, Libra. It’s a dance of side-stepping and seduction. Book Breakdown I did not know this was coming! When I woke up on June 1st and saw an email from Amazon saying the author dropped a new book in this series... I lost it! I hones

Music Monday - Recent Plays

This fun meme is hosted over at Always Me   I listened to a lot of music over this past week because I've been on fall break. It's been pretty good minus all the tornadoes and bad weather, but today the high was only around 70! That's amazing for this part of Oklahoma.  The music I've been vibing to is darker sounding songs since it's so close to Halloween! This year my partner and I are gonna crave pumpkins that always and then I'm gonna go with a friend on a train ride. She said she's done it before and it's fun. I'm hoping she'd right!  But for now, to the songs! Sooooooo what did you think? Let me know below and have a great week! Stay safe, wear a mask, and happy reading! 

Bisexual Erasure (Pride Month)

Happy Pride! Since today is bisexual day, I wanted to talk about something important to me. I hope you'll listen with open ears, mind, and heart. Thank you.  I’ve seen this happening for years now. People will say things like, “it’s a phase” or “pick a side.” I’ve even seen some say that bisexual people only like cisgender men and women and exclude all other genders. Which isn’t always the case. Sure, some bisexual people feel that way, which is why pansexual and other names came into play. But at its core, being bisexual just means that you’re attracted to more than just one gender.  I’ve never hidden on this blog the fact that I’m bisexual but I rarely talk about the struggles I feel because it just never felt right when you have gay people that have to hide their complete selves for fear of what the world could do to them.  Or trans people who spend every day trapped in the wrong body and can’t tell anyone to get the things they need to be their truth selves.  Put against issues
